Smile MDS Conference in Palo Alto

The Conference will be held at the Sheraton Hotel on El Camino Real in Palo Alto. For reservations call Deborah Murray at 1-800-637-0839. The Guest Speaker will be Dr. Jason Gotlib from Stanford University Medical Center. The
event will be from 9:30 am till 2:00 pm with breakfast and lunch served. I reserved a room at the Hotel for $129.00 - whether that price includes taxes - I didn't ask - but they don't ask for a two-night stay like a lot of places. There is no discount for patients as there often is. I live just an hour+ away but didn't want to deal with the morning rush hour drive over Hwy #17 so opted to go the day before.
